This panel considers the visual aspects of comics and the interactions of art and language. Kim Munson discusses the legacy of the groundbreaking 1967 exhibition Bande Dessinée et Figuration Narrative at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in the Louvre and its influential catalog, A History of the Comic Strip. Meghan Cartier (California State University, Fresno) compares the books of Pre-Columbian Central Mexico and the figure of Lady 6-Monkey, to modern comics to examine how symbols and iconography work in a cultural artistic consciousness. Wyatt E. Sarafin (Kenyon College) looks at Chris Ware's Jimmy Corrigan: The Smartest Kid on Earth, outlining how the text's diagrams, which reveal information otherwise excluded from the narrative, compensate for the text's failed masculinity, in the process commenting on the current history of the art of comics.
